About Henchmen the Comic:
Henchmen is a comic book about ‘the other guys’.
Gary is struggling to get by. Too old to learn a new trade, too young to retire. Then he finds a mysterious classified ad. When he applies in person, he finds a subversive world of henchmen for hire. Readers will see the familiar superhero landscape from the unique perspective of those who rarely get a voice but are always present… the Henchmen. While the superhero is battling the super-villain, the henchmen are the ones loading the loot into the van. They all have stories, they all have fears. Gary is a good man driven to do terrible things.
Full color 48 pages $4.99.
Cover by renowned comic artist icon Dave Dorman (Star Wars, Indiana Jones)
“Henchmen was a labor of love,” Wyrick continues. “We know a lot of folks who really want to go to the San Diego Comic Con but can’t. We just wanted to give them a special release to look forward to that they COULD get a hold of!”
